Written by Ryan Nimer, a BYU student, studying a volume of scripture known as the Pearl of Great Price, which is written by prophets; members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints “Mormons” revere it as sacred text. This post comes from a book within the Pearl of Great Price known as The Book of Moses; it is an extraction from the translation of the Bible as revealed to Joseph Smith the Prophet, June 1830—February 1831.
God the Father is the Literal Father of Our Spirits
Throughout time people have asked and still ask: what is the purpose of life? One of the wonderful things about the restored gospel, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the “Mormon” Church), is that we have the answer to this question. Although the purpose of life encompasses a few important principles, one of the most significant realizations needed to understand this purpose is that we are children of God, our Heavenly Father. One of the Great Old Testament prophets Moses was visited by the Lord and taught about his relationship to God. As we learn about Moses’ experience we can understand more about our purpose in life and our relationship to God as well.
